06 General layout design of 24-28 t/h aqua feed plant

The complexity of the general layout of the 24-28t/h aqua feed plant is closely related to the production scale and requirements.

  • For a large feed factory, to operate normally, it is necessary not only to build a production workshop equipped with reasonable floating fish feed technology and aqua feed machine, but also to build a matching vertical cylinder warehouse, raw material warehouse, finished product warehouse, and variable distribution closely related to production (electric room, machine repair workshop, boiler room, material warehouse, weighbridge room and other auxiliary facilities, as well as office buildings, laboratories, dormitories and other office and living facilities).
  • The layout of these building facilities affects the production management and efficiency of the 24-28t/h aqua feed plant. Whether the in-plant logistics is reasonable is an important basis for running through and measuring the success of the overall layout.
  • In particular, the main buildings such as feed production workshops, vertical silos, raw material warehouses, and finished product warehouses should be arranged according to the floating fish feed production process, and the distance between the transportation lines from raw materials to finished products should be shortened as much as possible to avoid round-trip transportation of materials.
  • Routes, strive to avoid intersections, minimize footprint, and the spacing of buildings must also meet fire, hygiene and safety requirements.
  • Due to the limitation of land acquisition conditions, the boundaries of the newly built factories are mostly irregular polygons. The production area should be arranged in the middle of the factory area as much as possible, and the auxiliary facilities should be arranged by making full use of the surrounding angle sites to meet the production requirements.
  • At present, the layout of the main buildings such as raw material warehouse, processing workshop and finished product warehouse of the 24-28t/h aqua feed plant mainly adopts two forms of sub-connection layout and cluster combination layout.
  • The sub-item connection arrangement means that the production workshop, raw material warehouse, finished product warehouse, etc. are constructed independently of each other, and the main workshop and each warehouse are connected through corridors, trenches or overpasses to form an overall combined form.
  • In this arrangement, each building has good ventilation and lighting performance, but it occupies a large area, and the material transportation operation line is long during the production process, and the transportation cost is high and uneconomical.
  • The cluster combination arrangement is to build the main workshop, raw material warehouse and finished product warehouse organically and completely together, and they are separated from each other by walls, which has the advantages of high site utilization, short transportation operation lines, and flexible arrangement of functional units. Ventilation and lighting conditions are poor.

Process flow design of 25 t/h aqua feed plant

01 Raw material receiving and cleaning:

Bulk raw materials are transported into the factory by vehicles, and are automatically unloaded at the raw material discharge port. An exhaust gas collection and treatment system is installed above the discharge port.

Reuse of raw materials. The raw materials enter the powder cleaning screen through scraper conveyor and bucket elevator to remove large impurities, then enter the permanent magnet cylinder to remove iron impurities, and then directly enter the batching bin.

02 Crushing stage:

The materials to be crushed (corn, soybean meal) are fed from the top feeding port through the feeder matched with the machine, and then enter the crushing chamber from the left or right through the feeding guide plate.

Under the action of the blow and the friction of the sieve plate, the material is gradually crushed and discharged from the outlet of the base through the sieve hole under the action of centrifugal force and airflow.

03 Batching and mixing system:

  • Batching: After PLC automatic measurement, various materials are transported into the batching scale through the auger in proportion to ensure that the material weight tolerance is within the range allowed by the company.
  • Mixing: After the material is automatically batched, it enters the mixing system, and the various materials are fully mixed, and the mixing uniformity exceeds 93%. This section is the key section to ensure the quality of feed. This section adopts a double-shaft paddle high-efficiency feed mixer machine, and multiple liquid adding devices can be set up according to the needs of the formula.

    During the mixing process, the flow rate of liquid addition and the optimal time of addition are controlled by a microcomputer to ensure that the liquid raw materials and the solid phase raw materials are fully mixed evenly.

    In order to reduce the cross-contamination of feed raw materials and improve the working environment, a pulse bag filter is installed in the feeding device of the opponent, so that the dust of the added raw material can be returned to the original process line. The mixed ultrafine powder feed enters the subsequent puffing and granulation process.

04 Processing stage of extruded feed:

  • Conditioning and tempering: Conditioning and tempering is a process of hydrothermal treatment and softening of the powder before the feed is puffed.
  • Expansion: Extruded pellet feed made by floating fish feed extruder machine has more advantages. Through the comprehensive effect of steam heat energy, mechanical friction energy and pressure, it can achieve many functions such as sterilization and improving feed digestibility. This project adopts the twin-screw extruding process, which improves the nutritional value of the feed and improves the puffing effect.

05 Drying system:

Use the steam provided by the natural gas-fired boiler to indirectly dry the feed pellets to remove water. This process will generate a certain amount of boiler flue gas, drying exhaust gas and a certain degree of noise.

06 Cooling system:

A countercurrent cooler is used, so that the product can be cooled and dried to achieve a safe use level.

07 Metering and packing:

The cooled pellets or crumbled pellets are classified and screened out a small amount of finely crumbled pellets and then enter the finished product warehouse.

06 Finished products:

Qualified products enter the finished product warehouse and can then be sold.

Layout of 25 t/h aqua feed plant

The main buildings of the aqua feed mill project include office building, raw material workshop, main workshop, finished product workshop, warehouse, auxiliary room, etc.

The wind direction of the project area is mainly southeast wind, the main workshop is in the middle of the factory area, and the office area and living area are in the south of the production area. Therefore, the general layout is simple and reasonable.

Our aqua feed plants are designed to minimize number of necessary operators. Also, process overview and a safe working environment has been taken into account when designing the fish aqua feed making plant.

Biosecurity is increasing in importance and the automated flow of raw materials through the plant, thermal processing and storage of the finished feed have been logically planned so that all is kept separate, eliminating contamination and ensuring a high level of biosecurity.
